I don’t understand why it took me so long to discover this wonderful spot… Long ago my colleagues told me they would go for lunch at “Andronaco”, an Italian warehouse in the middle of nowhere – in the middle of a heavy industrial area east of Hamburg. That didn’t sound attractive to me. But, do you long for the next Italy trip? Are you desperate to get this Italian feeling of “la dolce vita”, good wine, tasty food and just feeling like you’re on a little vacation in Southern Europe? Then visit this market, stroll around and look at all this delicious food, try different types of ham or gorgeous cheese. They offer plenty of fresh antipasti and seafood and also Italian bread and cookies. Look at the high shelves full of olives, pestos, dried tomatoes, pasta – just everything you need for Italian cooking and enjoying!
Outside the market they have a bistro where you can eat delicious lunch at affordable prices. You can get a range of antipasti, salads, pizza, fish or meat and different kinds of pasta. I highly recommend you visit Andronaco on Fridays, because they serve mouth-watering gambas in oil and garlic – so yummy!
In Hamburg there are three Andronaco Stores, the second one you’ll find at Beerenweg 24-26 in Bahrenfeld. In July 2015 they opened a third store located in the Hafencity, Am Sandtorkai 44.
